The hotel is in the heart of Colombo and if you get a room with the view overlooking the sea it is splendid. The rooms are in need of an uplift - but I guess being a busy hotel the renovation is going to be a difficult undertaking. Service from staff was absolutely great. The staff at the breakfast buffet...

Galadari Hotel is well located near the city centre and port. A large hotel with many convenient meeting rooms. The common areas are smart and well serviced. Staff are efficient and helpful. Price is reasonable.

First impressions of this Hotel are Lovely. We arrived in the evening and the lobby was filled with Xmas decorations and looked lovely. Staff were good. But our room was disappointing. Really looked tired and carpet dirty. Breakfast buffet was average. Location was good.

We booked via our local agency. We were 2 persons and a child. We were given a room on smoking floor when none of us smokes. We complained as the room was dirty with old furniture, leaking and musty bathroom and stained bedsheets. We asked to change room and reception found us one on non smoking floor. The set-up was...

We stayed 5 nights over the new year. Got a room on the 10th floor with a good view of the Gall Face green and the sea. That is the good part of the room. Check in was fast. Room size is good. I would say large for a double occupancy. On entering the room we found underwear left on...

I stayed at the Galadari in November 2016. On check out, I accidentally left my gold jewelry in the hotel safe. I realized that my jewelry was missing only after getting back to Montreal 2 days later. I immediately got in touch with a friend of mine in Sri Lanka who called the hotel and was told that the jewelry...

I"m surprised this is considered a five star, even by Sri Lankan standards. I agree with other reviewers that the carpet is badly in need of an upgrade. Good thing I had my flip flops because I did not want to walk without them.The food experience was average, if that. The hotel staff was lovely, smiling and helpful so I...

I've stayed at Galadari Hotel a few times. The rooms are too dated for my taste and in need of an update with good interior design. Bathrooms are also not the best with some leaking water through the shower cubicle. Do NOT depend on the hairdryer in the room as it is quite old with barely enough power to dry...

I am not going to write a long post; plain and simply, worst hotel I have stayed at!!!!!! Well almost stayed at, we left the hotel and found a new one could not even stay 12 hours there. Rooms had mold and smelled like smoke, they may have been good in 1984 but not now.
